Cyber Insurance – Selecting the Right Policy to Identify and Mitigate Risk

By Roberta Anderson and Nickolas Milonas

Given the prominence of recent cyber attacks, the importance of comprehensive cyber security policies in both the private and public sectors has received increased attention.  As part of a comprehensive approach to cyber security, cyber insurance can be a critical tool to identify and mitigate an organization’s data risks.  However, the wide range of potential risks faced by different organizations and the lack of standardized policy language in this emerging field can make selecting an appropriate policy difficult.  In light of these challenges, we recently developed a list of five key issues to consider when selecting a cyber insurance policy, including identifying an organization’s risk profile, checking against an organization’s existing policies, purchasing cyber insurance as-needed, covering third-party cloud providers, and recognizing the physical aspect of cyber security.

FCC Temporarily Suspends Filing Deadlines

UPDATE:  The FCC issued a Public Notice with revised deadlines for filings affected by the government shutdown.

With the federal government reopening today, the Federal Communications Commission has temporarily suspended until further notice all filing deadlines that occurred during the shutdown or that will occur on or before October 21 (except for Network Outage Reporting System filings).  The FCC expects to issue further guidance on revised filing deadlines soon.
